Scientists think they have answered a mystery: How some ocean creatures got so huge so quickly.

A few million years ago, the largest whales, averaged about 15 feet long. Then seemingly overnight, one type of whale, the toothless baleen whale(须鲸类)became huge. Modern blue whales get as big as 100 feet. Nicholas Pyenson of the Smithsonian Natural History Museum said, “Why is that?” ”It happened in the glance of an evolutionary eye, which makes it harder to figure out what happened,” said Graham Slater, lead author of the study. Their study has suggested an answer: Ice ages in the last 3 to 5 million years started it, changing the oceans and food supply for whales.

The researchers used fossil records of the smaller whales to create a family tree for baleen whales which include blue whales, humpbacks and right whales. Using computer simulations(模拟)and knowledge about how evolution works, they concluded that when the size changes started, the poles got colder, ice expanded and the water circulation in the oceans changed and winds shifted,    Slater and Pyenson said cold water went deep and moved closer to the equator(赤道)and then eventually moved back up with small fish and other small animals that whales eat.

Baleen whale, which have no teeth, feed by eating huge amounts of fish they capture. Toothed whales, like sperm whales (抹香鲸), hunt individual fish, so the ocean chants that made food less evenly spread out didn’t affect them as much. But baleen whales hunt schools of fish.

Olivier Lambert at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences calls it “a really convincing situation”. But he said the lack of fossils in certain time periods is an issue. As oceans warm from man-made climate change, the seas will be more like it was when the whales smaller and they will have a more difficult time surviving.

1.What does the author mean by “It happened in the glance of an evolutionary eye” in the second paragraph?

A. The change of baleen whales happened too quickly.

B. The change of baleen whales was too difficult to explore.

C. Researchers paid little attention to the change of baleen whales.

D. Researchers thought the change of baleen whales was unimportant.

2.What played the key role in baleen whales’ becoming huge?

A. Man-made climate change.

B. Its eating a huge amount of fish.

C. The water circulation in the oceans.

D. The increase of food supply for whales.

3.What do we know about sperm whales and blue whales according to the text?

A. Sperm whales eat more food.

B. Blue whaler live much longer.

C. Sperm whales prefer to hunt schools of fish.

D. Blue whales usually swallow schools of fish.

4.What can we infer from the last paragraph?

A. There are no whale fossils now.

B. The whales may become even bigger.

C. Global warming has threatened the whales.

D. Olivier Lamber thinks the study is perfect.

 

A drug used to treat severe bleeding could save thousands of lives for mothers giving birth. A global trial of the drug found it reduced the risk of bleeding deaths during childbirth by nearly one-third. The study involved 20,000 women in 21 countries, mainly in Africa and Asia. The trial was carried out by London's School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The drug is called d tranexamic acid (氨甲环酸). It is low-cost and researchers said it does not cause serious side effects for mothers or babies.

The drug is used to treat mothers for severe bleeding during childbirth, also known as postpartum hemorrhage (产后出血).It is the leading cause of mother’s death worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

Haleema Shakur is the project director of the trial. She says despite medical advances in many countries, severe bleeding after childbirth remains a big problem in some parts of the world. “It's one of the biggest killers of mothers. In Africa and Asia. about 10 percent of women will end up with severe bleeding. " The drug works by stopping blood clots(血凝块) from breaking down after a mother gives birth. The treatment can prevent the need for doctors to perform surgery to find the source of bleeding.

Shakur said the best results were reported when the drug was given to women as soon as possible after childbirth, “The earlier you give it- so within the first three hours of giving birth—the better the effect is. ”

The next step will be to get the drug where it is needed provide training for doctors and nurses on how to use it. During the trial, women were given the drug in a hospital. But researchers are looking for easier ways to administer the drug so it can be more widely used in small clinics and rural areas.

B. African and Asian countries made great progress in medicine.

C. There is a long way to go before the drug can be used more widely.

D. Postpartum hemorrhage is the leading cause of women’s death.

Parents' Day Origin

Parents’ day is an American event to honor the parents and families.1.It was only in the year 1994 that this event got officially accepted in the USA.

2.But it can be certainly said that this event is born from the eternal(永恒的)desire of mankind to honor and appreciate parents—who are responsible for the upbringing(养育)of the new generation.

Their huge efforts and patience have opened up a new view for the humankind.As said earlier,Parents’ Day got its acceptance in the year 1994.President Mr.Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into law.It was decided that the fourth Sunday of every July would be celebrated as Parents’ Day.3.It is similar to the Mother's Day and Father's Day.

4.But within few years after its acceptance,the event has spread its wings to the whole world.The event is now widely accepted and the joy of celebration is even more compared to a decade ago.Some of us may say that,it is a duty for the parents to bring up their children in the best possible way.5.They do it all because of the bondage(捆绑)of love and affection by which they are bonded to their children.

A.Of course it is,but not for a duty.

B.Parents should bring their children up.

C.The tradition of celebrating Parents’ Day is relatively new.

D.Surprisingly this event was not even there over two decades ago.

E.The Mother’s Day and Father's Day are similar to Parents’ Day in the USA.

F.It is very hard to say when the idea of Parents’ Day actually came into picture.

G.Parents’ Day is celebrated throughout the USA.

 

I was born and raised in Minnesota,the USA,but as an adult I have mostly lived in Europe and Africa.I teach cross-cultural management at the International Business School near Paris.For the last 15 years,I’ve studied how people in different parts of the world build trust,communicate,and make decisions especially in the workplace.

While traveling in Tokyo recently with Japanese colleague,I gave a short talk to a group of 20 managers.At the end,I asked whether there were any questions or comments.No hands went up,so I went to sit down.My colleague whispered to me,“I think there actually were some comments,Erin.Do you mind if I try?”I agreed,but I guessed it a waste of breath.He asked the group again,“Any comments or questions?”

Still,no one raised a hand,but this time he looked very carefully at each person in the silent audience.Gesturing to one of them,he said,“Do you have something to add?”To my amazement,she responded “Yes,thank you.”and asked me a very interesting question.My colleague repeated this several times,looking directly at the audience and asking for more questions or comments.

After the session,I asked my colleague,“how do you know that those people had questions?”He hesitated,not sure how to explain it,and then said,“It has to do with how bright their eyes are.”

He continued,“In Japan,we don’t make as much direct eye contact as you do in the West.So when you asked if there were any comments,most people were not looking directly at you.But a few people in the group were looking right at you,and their eyes were bright.That indicates that they would be happy to have you call on them.”

I thought to myself I would never have learned from my upbringing in Minnesota.Since then,I try to focus on understanding behavior in other cultures I encounter,and keep finding the bright eyes in the room.

A university in southwest China's Chongqing City set up a reading room as part of a campaign(活动)that stops students from taking their mobile phones with them in case the device distracts(使分心)them from concentrating on their studies.

Reportedly a student named Hu Xiaopeng participating in the campaign studied 530 minutes without using his mobile phone.Unlike Hu,another one picked up his mobile phone in less than 20 minutes.“Having seen many students use their mobile phones in the library,a habit that shortens their study time and negatively impacts their learning,we decided to open this reading room,”said Zhang Shuran,the person responsible for the project at the university.

Zhang added that students can keep their phones in appointed bags with numbers on them.The hags are placed on a desk near the door of the reading room."Staff members at the reading room will check the phones when there's a call,"said Zhang,adding that they will inform students when their parents or teachers call them,but will not tell students if an unknown person is calling or when there is a text message.Based on the time students hand in their phones when they come to the reading room and the time they get them back when they leave the room,Hu Xiaopeng from College of Animal Science and Technology of the university set a record of the longest time.Hu spent 530 minutes studying without using his phone.Though feeling somewhat surprised,Hu said,"It's bad to keep mobile phone with you when you are reading or studying."

The campaign has attracted nearly 200 students since it was launched a week ago.Some Internet users praised the campaign.One user named Liu Jingchang said,"It's good.I don’t bring my phone when going to the library in case I get distracted."

1.Why is the reading room opened in Chongqing City?

D. Hu Xiaopeng thinks the campaign is a bad idea.

3.What is the attitude of the students toward the reading room?

A. Cautious.    B. Supportive.

C. Doubtful.    D. Anxious.

4.What is the best title for the passage?

I was sitting at my favorite table in a restaurant on last Sunday waiting for the food I had ordered to arrive. I suddenly found that Lin Ling, one of my classmate, worked as a waitress there. Honest speaking, it was great surprise for me to find her working there. As far as I know, she’s from a richer family. What made her work there? I walked up to her but asked her the reason. When asking, she said, “I just want to earn some pocket money so that we can help some children in poor areas go back to school.” How a good girl! I should learn from her.
